Question: Hi Anne, I hope all is well with you. I am writing the marketing section of my business plan and I am searching for articles and information on the growth of our industry. Can you advise me on the best place to gather this information? Thank you so much for your guidance. It is a great support through this rocky building time! Best, Cathy
Answer: Hi Cathy, The best source is NAPO and the Board of Certified Professional Organizers. Understand, any industry information is going to be lagging by about two years, but you can get trends. However, the trends are changing in general due to the economic climate of today is so vastly different than it has been as during the growth of our industry. You might also just do a general Google search "professional organizer industry" and read the websites that come up.
I made the decision to go and my reservations to the NAPO annual Conference! If you are planning on attending, let me know so we can connect. If you have been a Webinar participant I would love to meet you face to face. If you are new to the NAPO conference scene I would be happy to help you get oriented.
I’m very excited to see that the Professional Organizer industry is growing in this economy. Twenty-two new Professional Organizers launched their business with our Track 1, January and February Seminars, and Self Study program this year--that's two short months!
